Dr. Emily Headshot

Hello! I am

Dr. Emily Franklin, DOM, CHN

I am a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, and Functional Medicine practitioner, and I have been treating patients with natural medicine for 25+ years. My mission is to make holistic healthcare as accessible, do-able, and effective as possible, helping people feel better than they ever thought possible.

About Dr. Emily

I have been treating patients with natural medicine for 25+ years, guiding 1,000s of people on a journey to reverse and prevent chronic diseases, and totally transform their health – with food, herbs, supplements, and lifestyle changes – so they can live the life of their dreams, with abundant energy, vitality and well-ness.

My overarching goal is to make healthcare more natural, more root-cause-treatment based (instead of symptom suppressing), and – most importantly – more deeply effective, without unnecessary and harmful drugs and surgeries.

Dr. Emily’s 10-Day Detox Course

Do you feel like you’ve tried everything, but are still struggling with chronic health issues? 

Things like: excess weight, fatigue, brain fog, poor sleep, difficulty dealing with stress, mood issues like depression and anxiety, hormone imbalances, hot flashes, low libido, allergies, digestive issues, immune system problems, chronic pain? 

Allow me to let you in on a little secret…

There’s a silent, invisible monster hiding behind most health issues! 

And until you deal with that monster, you will likely have difficulty making the kind of health progress that you crave…

And that secret is, toxins.

They are everywhere, all the time, affecting every one us. They are in our air, and our water, and our food. They are in our clothing, our cleansers, our cars. They are in the very bones of the houses we live in.

So, what do you do about them?

Detox!

Your body needs your help to get all those modern manmade chemicals out, so that you can achieve the outstanding good health that you know you are capable of, and have tried so many times to achieve.

And maybe you’ve done detoxes and cleanses before.

Problem is, most cleanses and detox programs are missing key components that are essential for success… because they’re not based on the 4 fundamental phases of detoxing that are required to effectively rid your body of harmful toxins.

In fact, some of the foods and beverages they recommend actually BLOCK your body’s ability to remove toxins!

And when you’re not clearing toxins, it’s hard to make real progress.

This course is lifechanging – check out our testimonials to see the kind of results people are getting!

“Dr. Emily’s 10-Day Detox is a real game-changer. I went into it feeling open-minded, but skeptical (I mean, what difference can 10 days really make, right?), and came out the other side feeling amazed.

My belly shrank by 3 inches, I have so much more energy, I’m sleeping better, and I’m a lot less grumpy (hubby says thanks!) And the recipes are easy and delicious – they’ve all become regulars on our menu since.

I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to learn how to significantly improve how they feel pretty quickly and easily.”
